subject for them! Explore new technologies and materials, discover engineering and construction techniques, and investigate the way that computers have revolutionised the way we design, build, and test! With subjects dissecting the architectural wonder of the Tower of Hanoi, investigating the metalwork in Ned Kelly’s armour, and designing their very own app and website, students are introduced to a wide range of activities that challenge their problem solving skills and develop their technical literacy. In later Year Levels, students have the opportunity to visit the fantastic facilities at the Monash Tech School and further their studies in Design Technology alongside complimentary subjects such as Visual Communication and Design, Information Technology, Science Studies, and apprenticeships through VCAL.
